Proceedings in the first trial before the International Criminal Court have been stayed on grounds of non-disclosure of exculpatory evidence by the Office of the Prosecutor, in circumstances described by the Trial Chamber as a 'wholesale and serious abuse'. On 13 June 2008, the judges of Trial Chamber I - Sir Adrian Fulford (United Kingdom), Elizabeth Odio Benito (Costa Rica) and René Blattmann (Bolivia) - rendered their 44-page Decision on the consequences of non-disclosure of exculpatory materials covered by Article 54(3)(e) agreements and the application to stay the prosecution of the accused, together with certain other issues raised at the Status Conference on 10 June 2008 ('the Decision').
